    Visual Art my big art project

    Hey guys! At school we did a big art project and I'm really proud of how it tuned out so I thought I'd share it with you guys. This was what we had to do: we needed to make three different drawings, but they all needed to have the same theme. Then you needed to pick two from those three drawings and do them again but then better m. Then you needed to find pictures that went with your theme and at least you had to make it into one big artwork. The inspiration for all the drawings came from the song imaginary from evanecense. Hope you like it, but tips are always wanted Xox summer
  6. Introduction As promised in my last PRfan93 Reviews Power Rangers, here is one of two blogs that reviews two other shows Saban made to cash in on Power Rangers' success: VR Troopers and Beetleborgs. Now...on with the show! The Episode Part 1 The episode begins at a haunted house, where two kids are running out, screaming their little heads off. These kids are Van and Trip, two rich jerks who act as the Bulk and Skull of this series. Trip (played by Todd Hurst) - Van's smarter brother who enjoys pulling get-rich-quick schemes and flaunting his "superiority". Van (played by Patrick Seaborn) - A less smarter version of Trip. Need I say more? Anyways, the next day, we are introduced to our three main heroes: Drew, Jo, and Roland. Unlike the Power Rangers, however, these three are grade school-middle school age. All three are fans of a comic book series starring the Beetleborgs, three Ranger-like superheroes. Drew McCormick (played by Wesley Barker) - Jo's older brother, and leader of the Beetleborgs. Roland is his best friend, and has a crush on Heather, a girl who works at the comic shop. Jo McCormick (played by Shannon Chandler in Big Bad Beetleborgs, played by Brittney Konarzewski in Beetleborgs Metallix) - Drew's younger sister, and the youngest of the trio. Roland Williams (played by Herbie Baez) - The only minority of our trio, Roland is an African-American kid, whose family owns the local comic shop. When the trio get to the comic shop, we are introduced to Roland's family, mother Abbie, father Aaron, and grandmother Nano. Abbie Williams (played by Channe Nolan) - Roland's mother, who works in real estate, and in Beetleborgs Metallix, runs the comic shop when her husband goes away on business. She doesn't see eye-to-eye with her first. Aaron Williams (played by Kim Delgado) - Roland's father, who owns the comic shop. He does not like his mother's "dangerous" lifestyle. "Nano" Williams (played by Vivian Smallwood) - Roland's grandmother (and quite an awesome one at that) who enjoys ridin' Harleys and messing with her son Aaron. She co-owns the comic shop. Trip and Van arrive, tease the trio, and then make a bet: see who can last the longest at the old Hillhurst mansion, which we had seen earlier. They agree, knowing full well that their opponents have no spines. Soon, after a bit of exploring, our trio encounters the three (later four in this season, and five in the second) house monsters: Mums, Frankenbeans, and Fangula. Mums (played by Blake Torney) - an ancient mummy with 703 siblings, his bandages reveal a Nightmare Fuel-inducing Grim Reaper form underneath. Frankenbeans (played by David Fletcher) - A Frankenstein-like creature with no brain (literally), Frankenbeans is the stupidest of the monsters. Count Fangula (played by Joe Hackett) - A vampire based on Dracula, Trip and Van are actually the first ones to encounter him, and chicken out of the bet because of it. While being chased by Mums and Frankenbeans, Jo accidentally activates the entrance to another room, which is empty, except for a mysterious organ...which begins to play on its own. Shocked by this, the kids try to get away...only to be confronted by Flabber, a ghost who was trapped in the organ. Flabber (played by Billy Forrester) - A phasm (ghost) combining elements of Elvis, Liberace, Jay Leno, Discord, and the Joker. He serves as the Zordon to the kids, albeit a much more comical one. In gratitude for releasing him, Flabber offers the kids a single wish. After a bit of thinking, the kids finally decide what they want: to become the Beetleborgs. Part 2 After a bit of comical misunderstanding (such as turning the kids into rats and trapping them into the comic book), Flabber grants their wish, transforming the kids into the three Beetleborgs: Drew, the Blue Stinger Beetleborg Jo, the Red Striker Beetleborg Roland, the Green Hunter Beetleborg After fending off the three house monsters, the trio demorph, and see three flying flames fly out, and once they leave, the flames become a group of evil aliens. These are the Megnavores, led by the evil Vexor. The Magnavores: Vexor (played by Joey Pal) - The leader of the Magnavores, Vexor seeks to rule the world, and creates his monsters via summoning them out of the comics. Typhus (played by Dave Footman) - Vexor's second-in-command who wields a sword. Noxic (played by David Umansky) - An android who is able to control machines and use them to his advantage. Jara (played by Rajia Baroudi) - Vexor's whip-wielding, Russian-accented third in command, she can't eat or drink anything due to her mouth staying two-dimensional. After summoning Vexor, the Monster of the Week is released, requiring the Beetleborgs to fight it. Rather than use giant robots, however, they use ATVs and tanks. With these new weapons, the trio fight the monster, then head back to Hillhurst. Flabber tells them that until the Magnavores can be put back into the comic book, they'll need to defend their home of Charterville from Vexor. When they get back to the comic shop, Trip and Van brag how they won the bet, but Jo informs them that they lost. Humiliated, Trip and Van leave, swearing revenge. My Opinion While I initially didn't like this show for its comedic tone and younger protagonists, I grew to liking the concept after watching the episode for the second time. Final Score 6/10
  7. Howdy folks, Pone here with some updates that about 94% probably won't give 2 shits about, but I'm here for that possible 6% that acutally read this and thats all that matters. Alright, so a while ago we decided we were trying to find different ways to make the group more interactive and due to the amazing contribution from you the forum user (0 replys) we had to get off our asses and come up with our own ideas which turned out a lot harder than we first thought, especially with the stubborness of some of our chat but this is some of the stuff we came up with: 1. Game nights! We're don't really have a schedual for this yet due to the diversity of the group so its really whenever 2. Art/Music Comps! Fame, Glory, Swag! If these are words that get your blood pumping then why not join the fun today! (This is still just an idea as we dont have enough support for this yet.) 3. FoxHD is gone! The one real reason to to join us has gone! No more will you feel the need to give up on life because of a random 13 year old thinking he's top shit. This is by far the most important update. 4. Other shit! A bunch of stuff that I can't really remember but its definatley there and totally isnit and excuse to make this list seem longer than it is! Thats about it for this update, remember if you want to be a part of our insanely exclusive club then your journey begins... HERE! Thats all for today, hope to see you around. We'll save you a barstool
  8. Hi, everypony! The Equestria Big Band is forming! We are a small group of musicians who are looking to translate our favorite tunes from Equestria into a style that we love. We aim to produce high-quality recordings from well-written arrangements, and eventually build the project up to promote and be promoted by many other great MLP projects around the globe. For myself, I love creating something that I can gift to the community to enjoy, and I'm a big fan of the fanbase taking command and ownership of something like this. (For those who need to see some of my work, click the linked words!) Below is a list of positions in the band that are open to apply for. We will most likely find more role in the future that we'll need filled. Open Positions - 1 drummer - 1 jazz guitar player - 1+ trumpet player - 1 alto saxophonist - 1 tenor saxophonist - 1 baritone saxophonist - Additional roles (visual/graphics artists, etc...) - Other musicians who would like to be featured or feature our project - YouTubers, Artists, People who want to help promote - [We'll probably find more positions as we move forward] Completed/Working Arrangements This is a reference so that no one wastes any time working on arrangements of song that are already done! Equestria Big Band - Current Members This just takes up a lot of space! ALL joining performers MUST have decent recording equipment. I hold my personal production to a pretty high standard and while I want to be as inclusive as possible, I definitely want to keep a high level of quality. Admission IS on a try-out basis, so we can't guarantee that you'll be in if you apply/try out. For those who join: You'll likely be playing multiple parts and might take some improv solos. Note: If you wish or choose to join, you have to be willing to practice to get good, put up with having to perform multiple takes/retakes, take criticism, play possibly difficult charts and parts by perhaps good arrangers, and maybe not receive a lick of payback beyond lots of compliments and your own feelings of self-accomplishment! The way I see it, Twilight is definitely a tenor sax. Rainbow probably is first trumpet, and Rarity is on bari sax. Applejack is a trombone. Fluttershy would probably be keys/piano. Pinkie is on drums. Luna is most likely on bass. Join the band!
  9. Anybody currently watching Big Brother 17 on CBS? Also, please answer only if you're familiar with Big Brother.
  10. Hi everyone! I'm working a big recording project with some others from around here - we are forming a big band! We'll be writing and performing various jazz arrangements of your favorite songs from Equestria. We are looking for at least one of each of the following saxophone players; alto, tenor; and ONE bari. If you're interested in being part of a fun, cool project (and learning experience!), click the link below for more details, and reply there or send me a message and we'll get you set up! JOIN HERE! Thanks so much for looking!

    Pony Big Room House Colab

    So I want to expand into pony music but I have 1 slight problem, I have no idea how to implement ponies into my music .-. So I was wondering if anypony with some sort of electronic music experience would like to do a colab to help me move over to pony music, I was hoping to do a big room house track but I'm happy to work with other genre's (Except dubstep, there's already enough pony dubstep around) Reply or PM me if you're interested
  13. So, yeah i just love Bioshock. I bet you do too. BTW Bioshock infinitity is really good too my friend developes it and has a copy of the beta he gave it to me. Post what you think of the Bioshock games.
  14. I come here fresh after the stream and though thoroughly satisfied with Episodes 1+2, part of me is a little disappointed that King Sombra didn't have a more prominent role. All he really did was laugh and i think he had about 1 or 2 small lines. I don't know why, but i had it in my head that he was going to be really hard to beat (physically) but in the end he amounted to a bunch of smoke with his traps doing most of the work, which still wasn't that much. I have mixed feelings about him but the episodes on a whole were brilliant. What did you think of him? Was he the worst villain yet or am i underrating him?
  15. Finally, after putting this one on hiatus, I finished it! Here it latest remix. Critique is wanted.
  16. Remember in "Bats!" how the mane 6 have to sacrifice the Apple family’s big apple to save Fluttershy? Well, we never see what happens when Granny Smith and company come home to see their contest entry compromised. So picture this: after the events of “Bats!”, Granny Smith and company come home and find that Applejack cut their big apple they were entering in the contest. What do you think happens next? How do you think Granny Smith reacts to the big apple being cut and compromised?
  17. who here is a big brony youtuber or just some one that makes videos? I do I make music and other kinds of videos i have no pony stuff yet but to find me just type fastkid235 and when you see my name jonathon moline thats me.
  18. Hey there everypony! My name is Trickster, and I'm an older brony girl who has several pony projects in the works. I am rather nervouscited (sorry, just saw EQG today) about a big big open-source game project I'm working on at present! I'm not quite ready to announce details, apart from the following stuff. First, it's a mod of an existing system, and I'm simplifying it significantly to make it easier for new players. There's a great deal of combat but the storyline makes it virtual (no actual killing real ponies). Also, I'm not the first pony to attempt this--I've seen at least two other groups try the same thing and give up, but I have the know-how and commitment to see it through. So here's where you come in. I need many small, digital art images. I could probably put them together by myself, but this would take me too long since I will need as much time as possible for coding. I'm looking for anyone interested in producing the art I'll need to make this product shine. The game will be playable without any art, but I think it will be worlds better with it. What I need are canonical images of a large range of characters and critters from the show, popular OC's, and a few ponies/gryphons/donkeys etc. that fit a general set of descriptions I will provide. Only a single image is needed per pony, but in some cases (such as the Mane 6) there may be multiple versions of a pony, like: Pinkie Pie, Pinkie Pie clone, sad Pinkie (straight hair), filly Pinkie, etc. Probably top-down 3/4 view is best. The images will need to be 64x64 png's with transparent background. Large characters can be 64x128. (They have to be in that dimension, so Crackle may need to stand sorta upright...) The characters should be relatively sized appropriately, within reason--some trompe-l'œil may be a useful approach. 3d models may be a better choice than resized flash, but I don't really know--whatever looks most realistic will be used. There are plenty of graphics already, just none which are pony-specific. Would anyone be interested in helping out? Let me know! I don't really know how to reach ponies in the community apart from locals, so feel free to spread the word or let me know if there's a better way to get the word out. My gmail is wolf.trickster, and I will be following this thread as well. Thanks so much everypony! Oh! Attached (shown below if it works) is a sample image that illustrates the quality of some of the art that the pony images will be folded into. (I just cropped this in Paint so I don't know if it kept the alpha channel but you will need that for blending if you have any shadows or soft edges.) But really--any art will do for this, ultimately. I think once it gets off the ground there will be a swell of people interested in contributing.

  20. Hello everyone . We have just finished watching season three and what a season it was. I thought it would be fun to look back over the whole season and write a comprehensive review of it, what was good, what could have been better, and what it did for the series. If this sounds like something that you’d be interested in reading, then I’ll cut right to the chase, and where better to start than with the premiere? The Crystal Empire After a long summer without new episodes it was incredibly satisfying to dive right into a new season. I personally only had to wait for about two months, but if the wait was driving me crazy I can only imagine how you all were feeling. Anyhow, I thought that it was a very good pair of episodes. Visuals were fantastic, and it seemed that there were plenty of nice artistic details to catch your eye in most every Crystal Empire scene. There were fantastic moments from each of the Mane Six, from Pinkie Spy to Rarity being her usual hammy self. Comedy was not neglected, as proven by the unforgettable Cadence Javelin. Spike even got to play a deciding role in the climax, and it was fantastic to see him receive some attention and for his relationship with Twilight to be touchingly expanded upon. Finally, there is one thing that I liked about this episode that I believe receives far too much criticism. King Sombra. While he didn’t have much of any backstory or established motivations (to be fair it is hard to develop a character without having it interact with anyone) he was imposing. He was the ever present evil that hung over our protagonists’ heads as they raced to save the empire, and as he finally broke through Cadence’s barrier and advanced on Spike and the Crystal Heart he made his presence felt. He served as an embodiment of power-hungry evil similar to Sauron from Lord of the Rings. My one major gripe with this episode was that it seemed far too focused on Twilight for my liking. I love Twilight, and I recognize that she is the “Main Character”, however what I loved about the first two episodes, The Return of Harmony and what drew me into the series was how the Mane Six were able to collaborate in interesting ways to do great things. While this collaboration was still present, it felt slightly strained as Twilight and Spike ran off to save the world and her friends took up support duty making straw hats and passing out flugelhorns. I would prefer it if the Mane Six were all equally relevant to the plot of major episodes, or at least more balanced than this. In spite of this issue, I liked the premiere a lot and thought it was a great way to kick off the season. Now I will begin character reviews, examining major characters and how well they were developed in season three. These will cover each of the episodes that each character was the focus of, and if there was anything good or bad about the episode unrelated to the character I will touch on it later. Spike I have a feeling that out there someone important said “Ladies and gentlemen, this season we are going to give Spike more attention.” And I’m all for that. My problem with Spike this season is that most of the time it felt like they didn’t have much of an idea what to do with him. He was elevated to the importance of the Mane Six in the premiere, and yet later placed below them in Just for Sidekicks. He was an excellent voice of reason in The Crystal Empire, and a bumbling incompetent in Spike at Your Service. I did enjoy the lessons of delayed gratification and responsibility that he learned in Just for Sidekicks, so there were plenty of positive moments with him this season. I like Spike and I like the idea of dedicating time and episodes to him, I just believe that at some point writers need to sit down and figure out exactly what Spike’s role in the show is and how to portray him with consistency. The Cutie Mark Crusaders As a group thew were the overeager, dreaming ,high-energy kids with a tendency for getting over their heads like they have always been. While Sleepless in Ponyville was primarily a Scootaloo episode I thought it provided the best characterization for the Crusaders as a whole for the season. It shared insight by comparing and contrasting them through their relationships with their sisters. Apple Bloom has a relatively normal and healthy relationship with Applejack. Sweetie Belle’s somewhat passive-aggressive give and take relationship with Rarity that still has a lot of love behind it was revisited. Of course I have the most to say about Scootaloo. Until this season she was relatively underdeveloped, her primary characteristics being her daredevil tendencies and her fangirlish behavior towards Rainbow Dash. As admirable as those traits are, she still needed more to establish her as a well-rounded character and this episode gave that to her. This episode took her feeling a step further by revealing that she wants more than a hero, she wants a mentor, a carer and a sister. Scootorphan is far from confirmed but the sheer strength of Scoots’ longing for an older figure to confide in and love far from discourages it. Watching her overcome her fears of rejection and throw down the barriers of bravado that she relied on to hide her insecurities created not only an amazing moment for her character, but also an amazingly adorable one. But you all knew that . Rarity Rarity was unfortunately relatively neglected this season. However, Rarity still provided some very memorable and enjoyable moments even if she didn’t receive an episode all for herself. She was able to liven up many scenes just by being her normal and incredibly hammy self. My favorite moment with her was probably when she eagerly decided to race the other sister pairs at the end of Sleepless in Ponyville. Fluttershy While she wasn’t especially prominent outside of her spotlight episode (and she might prefer it that way ) Fluttershy still got some fantastic development this season in my opinion. She once again proved that she continually sells herself short, because no coward would attempt to reform an all-powerful chaos spirit that had previously wreaked havoc across their entire town. She more than earned her title as a Friend to All Living Things, and while her determination to redeem Discord was extremely impressive, I was equally impressed by her rejection of him. Fluttershy has commonly been characterized as a doormat, who lets everypony (and her pet) walk all over her. I think she showed a lot of guts by finally telling the god of chaos that she was fed up with his shit. Even if Celestia was depending on her, and possibly her pride and belief in her own ability as the Element of Kindness was at stake, she proved that ultimately she is tough enough to recognize when somepony is taking advantage of her and to give them the boot. Thankfully it worked out for everyone in the end, but I think Fluttershy deserves some credit for her actions in Keep Calm and Flutter On. Pinkie Pie I thought that she performed masterfully in her episode. Too Many Pinkie Pies tied in well with A Friend in Deed, in that not only does she have to be friends with everypony but she also has to show all of her friends exactly how much they personally mean to her. I was able to relate to this completely, whick is why Pinkie is the character I relate to most besides Rainbow Dash. This episode surprised me quite honestly. I think everyone took a look at the title and synopsis of this episode and gave this evil little giggle (at least I did), anticipating randomness, hilarity and Pinkie’s overthrowing of Discord as the most chaotic character in the show. And with regards to this, it certainly lived up to expectations. However the episode was surprisingly deep as well. It revisited the fear of abandonment established in what is my favorite Pinkie Pie episode, Party of One. It was so soul crushing to watch her wonder, at the heart of it, what made her better than her clones? Incidentally, the clones acted as interesting ways to examine the depths of Pinkie’s character, in that they acted as many people perceive Pinkie. Flat. Random. Stupid. Obnoxious. However these allegations were clearly refuted by contrasting Pinkie with her clones, and wathing her overcome her doubts to prove her devotion to her friends was truly touching to see. Unfortunately as amazingly as she was used inside of her episode I felt that she was slightly more hit and miss than previous seasons. She is still my second favorite, but something seemed…off at times. A notable exception was in Wonderbolt Academy where she provided me with some positively shiptastic moments where her fears of abandonment were touched on once more. Applejack My new third best pony. She received much more attention than in previous seasons and it was well-deserved and well-used. However the thing that stood out clearly and developed Applejack best was obviously her spotlight episode, Apple Family Reunion. In it we saw good old perfectionist Applejack trying to create the best bonding experience possible but creating decidedly less than perfect results. This may have been the best episode for Applejack’s character, largely because she did something wrong. Applejack certainly has her share of issues, but unlike say, Rainbow Dash, her issues don’t generally cause her to do anything terribly wrong. There is a reason that she is the only one who has written a “I didn’t learn anything!” letter. Since making mistakes and putting your flaws on a pedestal is how character depth in this show, this has caused some to mistakenly Applejack as flat. However, there is one scene that absolutely made this episode, and this is it. This scene is not only heartwarming, but it also adds a layer of subtext to the entire episode, and in fact to Applejack’s entire life. She has taken on so much responsibility at such a young age as a desperate attempt to fill the void of her parents’ passing, and her inner drive to be perfect was suddenly explained entirely. This was one of the scenes that remind me of why I love this show, and it made me appreciate Applejack so much more. Rainbow Dash Ah. The good part There were so many fantastic moments this season from my favorite character. Throughout Sleepless in Ponyville she exhibited the same general ignorance of others’ problems that she’s always had, but what I loved was that this episode clearly showed the soft and more sensitive center that she’s always had but takes care to hide. While Season Two did an excellent job exploring her flaws, this season seemed to emphasize her more positive characteristics and that was excellent to see . The prime example of this was in Wonderbolt Academy. The ways that Rainbow has developed became clear, and being a character driven by dreams, it was unspeakably powerful to watch her sacrifice her dream in the name of staying loyal to her principles. I think this piece of art illustrates the meaning behind that scene best. Furthermore, by using Lightning Dust as a foil, Rainbow’s growth and strength of character were made all them more prominent. To elaborate further, I’ll turn to a snippet of a particularly good review of Wonderbolt Academy. I love the man who wrote that with all my heart. I think we as a community should make it a priority to find and brohoof all of his posts. I loved that episode as well because it didn’t neglect touching on Rainbow’s flaws, but it showed her confronting and surpassing them in a particularly amazing way. In addition to this we got to see have her own sort of Apple Family Reunion moment in Games Ponies Play and I admired her dedication to bringing the Empire something special, even if the episode itself wasn’t my favorite. All in all fantastic . I have made it my summer’s goal to find and hug Meriwether Williams and Corey Powell. Twilight Sparkle And Twilight. It was a good season for Twilight. The season premiere revisited both her deep need to please Celestia and her sisterly relationship with Spike, although I’d have preferred to have seen more of the latter throughout the rest of the season. In spite of my criticisms of the premiere as being too Twilight-centered for my liking, her portions of the season were in fact largely related to her learning to rely more on others. While this was something that she began to learn way back in Season One she is also a perfectionist, and at times she views having to rely on others as failure, and Sombra’s door revealed that failing Celestia is what she dreads most of all. Ultimately though she rejected this fear in the name of the greater good and turned to Spike for assistance. And it was good. In addition to this there was Magic Duel. I liked Magic Duel, and it can be compared in many ways to The Dark Knight Rises, so bonus points. I have seen some criticism of this episode as focusing far too much on plot and not enough on character development or interaction. While this isn’t entirely groundless, I do believe that it did something important for Twilight. She has a strong sense of responsibility, particularly when there is a disaster that is magical in origin. As the resident crazy-powerful magician it makes sense that she think this way, but it has limited her in the past. You could somewhat compare her thinking to this: This episode presented the rare occasion where Twilight is completely magically outclassed, and it somewhat undid my issues with The Crystal Empire by having her rely on her friends to remove the amulet. I also enjoyed the stylistic twist of her ending up playing the Trixie to Trixie’s Twilight, by winning through illusion and deception. And of course her easy forgiveness of Trixie cemented her credentials as a very compassionate character. The finale did an excellent job of showing how far she has come and how great of a character she is. Secondary Characters This season also used secondary characters masterfully. It was wonderful to see Discord, Luna, and Spitfire again, and furthermore to see different sides to their personalities than we had seen in previous seasons. Discord isn't as evil or heartless as he initially seemed to be. Spitifre isn't always laid back and relaxed. Luna isn't always an awkward CANTERLOCK-using, lightning bolt throwing night godess. And I loved those portrayals of the characters, but showing them with different behavior and in different situations made them much more well-rounded characters, and that is always nice . However, the thing that I believed that this season did best with secondary characters was to set up future plotlines for them. Redeeming Trixie and Discord made their returning in supporting roles ever the more likely. Now we can have an episode with the Manehattan crusaders or exploring Luna's rola as guardian of dreams. In addition to this, my new favorite minor antagonist Lughtning Dust could return, either to become good or to cement herself as Rainbow Dash's nemesis. Also, now that Rainbow has (presumably) a father, an episode featuring all of their families seems more likely. So all in all amazing, but I believe next season will have even more amazing appearances from secondary characters. I can't wait to see what it has to offer. Miscellaneous Animation was sleek and amazing, especially in episodes where they decided to go all out. After watching the finale, I guess I now know where they hid all of the music for this season which was top notch as well. I feel like Season Two's music was still better, but all in all nothing to complain about and much to praise. The Finale I will have typed this in thre span of five minutes or so, so forgive the probably lower quality. I liked the finale a lot, and it really showed off Larson's writing ability. There were many powerful moments, songs, comedy (Fluttershy's animals are EVIL! THEY TRIED TO EAT THE BEST PONY!) and it was all around great. Twilight has indeed come a long way, and while I still strongly disapprove of Twilight becoming an Alicorn, and if anything the episode reinforced my concerns about it, I still thought that while it was a concept that I to put it mildly, loathe, it was still executed very well. On the plus side, Meghan McCarthy has said that this one will function as something of a three-parter, so I can hold onto a shred of hope for Unicorn Twilight in Season Four. Good job M.A Larson. You've earned your place as my favorite writer. I had never thought of a Musical Episode but now I kind of want more of them Overall a fantastic season. I think Season Two edges it as my favorite still, but it did so much for the series and it was wonderful to watch it and to share it with all of you. May the next one be even better.
  21. Usually I would just discuss this with my own DevTeam only but seeing as this is an issue that concerns all MLP large scale projects like ours is scoping out to be, it's appropriate to post here. Yeah well basically I've always felt uneasy creating this MLP game due to copyright scares and I'm wondering what other game devs are doing about this. In my opinion, getting a lot of publicity during production is the worst thing to do, it'll just mean the Hasbro peepz will be keeping a closer eye on you. Also I'd say don't dream of getting accepted by Hasbro or dream of becoming super famous across the brony fandom because of your game. If you are, you should really revise the reason why you're doing whatever you're doing; just try to finish the damn project. Fame should be an unexpected fortune that arises while you're doing something you're happy and comfortable doing. (That's just my opinion ^-^) And now quickly to the topic So what is the best way to overcome these barriers? I mean it is illegal, and we don't want to get into serious trouble. The ways I was thinking about it was Develop everything in secret then, after completion, in a big rush just release it everywhere P: although that might lead you into some big trouble, but the great thing is you have your completed pony project! Get a rusty knife and stab your project in the butt, wounding it horribly, may even cause disease, but it will not die and can be fixed up. What I mean is do it the fake way. Change all licensed content to something stupid. Like Twinight Spurkl the Party crazy horse. Or heck, even just remove all trace of ponies completely, and replace it with other stuff. Now you're probably thinking :0 wat no, but here's the cool bit. Side this, just release a ponifying mod with the game. Disguise it as a Translation Pack, I dunno. Then comes both of these ways together. So you could just follow the first route and leave the second. Meaning you wont get as much a response from the public.Or you could take the second and leave the first. What this means then is that you could publicise your game (showing off the PonyMod version of course) and then when it comes to legal stuff, be like *quickly hides/deletes Mod*'we ain't got no ponies, just this game with Jonathan the bear shooting his pal Draco the Duck' *shows off poorly drawn sprites with no animation, drawn in half a minute on Paint* - Yeah but seriously, the non-pony version can be as crappy as you want it, no need to put effort into it, unless you want to. (Gah! Forgot my point about using both ) Anyways the safest way would be to completely take out all MLP stuff and forget about a Mod. I'm happy to go any way at all guys (my own [pirate] crew, not you random forumers) I just need some input P: So what are your tips and advice for this overriding issue? How should we tackle the issue? Should we just forget it; struggle our way through to a heroic and tragic end; be secretive and sly about it; be moderate and mediocre about it and hope for the best? wat do? ^That paragraph makes a good TL;DR funnily enough.

    Pony Games!

    Okay, so everpony knows how everypony loves some pony games, right ponies? Well, I'm terrible at keeping up with what's done, what's out, and what's what, so how about we make a pony game thread compilation? Just imagine the free time we could kill and the lols! Small scale games--like a simple flash game-- to bigger scale games like Mega-Pony, Fighting is Magic (I know, it's not out yet.) are all welcome. The more everypony knows about them all, the better. I'll start with Futzi01 and my favorite flash game by him, Pinkie Jump! It's AWESOME little platformer that's incredulously addictive... Edit: Ah, so Media Discussion is the right area. Got it.

  25. After you moved and went to another area (if you did), what's the Biggest thing you first noticed when you got there? It doesn't have to be instant, but atleast within the first month or so. The biggest thing I noticed when I moved was how warm and humid the air was, the air here is just over all different than it is in England, where the air's more "crispy" and colder. Breathing was.... it was pretty weird for the first few months, even after I got in school. I got used to it though after 3-4 months, but for some reason it feels like you're breathing car fumes with no smell. Not that I would breathe in car fumes on purpose, it's weird, but it's cool I guess.
